Visit Some of Italy's Most Spectacular Island Beaches
A visit to Sardinia Beach is often compared to visiting a Caribbean island. Its miles of white sandy beaches and clear, turquoise waters look more like something from a tropical beach vacation than that of a European trip. The beaches here are the most sought after in all of Italy and they are ranked as being some of the top beaches in the entire world.
The summer months in Italy, from June to early September, are the busiest here and beaches and seaside towns are usually packed with both locals and tourists who flock here to worship the sun and play in the waves.
Things to Do Near a Sardinia Beach
Besides laying in the sun, building sandcastles and wading in it’s crystal clear waters on the beaches Sardinia has to offer, the region has a lot to offer anyone who visits here. Some of the most popular activities include:

The Aguglia is the tallest of these formations.
